a rant on why not

This is the country of ingenuity, is it not? Then why are we not doing what it takes to come up with better solutions to our energy problems? Is it because Americans are too lazy to think anymore? We can think of many ways to use the internet, but we are still using filthy fuels like coal and gas to power our imaginations. Is there anyone out there that has a better idea than razing our mountains and pillaging our wilderness? Someone please say yes. I would really appreciate it. I grew up with this idea that Americans were the inventors, the idealists. I have been let down. It is very sad. It’s too bad that we can’t think of something better for us and our future. Coal? Oil? There has got to be a better way than raping our natural beauty. Put your brain into it, and please help save our beautiful country from those who would destroy it in it’s namesake.

    Our species is just not mature enough to regulate itself across the board in terms of reproduction and consumption. There are variations between subpopulations, and environmental limits, that bring up the spectre of control being imposed out of dire necessity. The Chinese got draconian on family size but are seeing disruptions caused by economic development, like
    urban gangs and pollution. Did you ever read my piece, “I Have a Green Streak”?

    Politicians have had a long love affair with “growth.” There are inklings of change in some European countries with Green Parties; and we even have a Green candidate in the Tennessee race for US Senator this year. Even though
    the gospel of pro-life and “Be Fruitful and Multiply” is out of date, it is hard to spread the gospel of green when the most receptive to its message have the fewest offspring.
